Meeting on Video Games Violence turns Useless and Strange

On Thursday a meeting was called by US President Donald Trump, which brought together executives from the gaming industry, members of the Congress and parents. The meeting was held to discuss the violence which was shown in video games. The meeting was badly organized and managed and was also criticized as a powerful distraction from other important gun power measures.
The meeting was a bit strange as its proceedings were not open to the press. President Trump showed a supercut of game scenes which are hyper-violent and are available to the online streamers very easily. The people who attended the meeting said that very few important things had been discussed at the meet and the content of the meet was very poor.
Even the government restrictions were not clear. The conversation at the meet focused on the measures that could be taken by the industry on its own and the age restriction limits to be put on such games.
Brent Bozell, President of Media Research Center, said that President Trump encouraged the game developers to come up with ideas that would make the society healthier. None of the three critics that attended the meet had particular knowledge about video games. The critics’ panel had Melissa Henson, member of the Parents TV Council, Lt. Col Dave Grossman and Brent Bozell as the panelist.
Among the gaming industry members, Robert Altman, CEO of Zenimax, Mike Gallagher, President of Entertainment Software Association and Strauss Zelnick, CEO of Rockstar Games, attended the meet.
